  1. Dear Sir,

    Now that it has been proved that the Reddy Brothers have looted mines in Karnataka & Andhra Pradesh, it is clear that the crown gifted to Lord Venkateshwara was made from ill-gotten wealth.

    It is a sin to adorn the Lord with a crown from ill-gotten wealth. Please could you consider auctioning off that crown or taking away the diamonds from the crown & selling it in open market.

    You will set an example to the public not to adorn the Lord with dirty money. As citizens have lost all faith in political leaders, we seek the help of spiritual leaders & The Lord in restoring our country.

    Please Sir, consider this request to dispose off that crown in the market – let it be a fitting reply to all corrupt people who think they can bribe the Lord too.

    Thank you Sir.
